this is our international live from moscow you know with me to say it's good to have your company with us this morning. the deadly government of lugansk ukraine's second largest city in the east has put the metropolis on a war setting air raid sirens blare constantly while military choppers circling overhead. sandwich a video appears to show the city coming under rocket fire a factor which would have precluded any intention of targeted strikes and these are pictures from a dash camera captured the moment a shell hits a car. this is wired
to what was left of the vehicle so far two people lost their lives in the raid on the ganske and dozens of buildings were left in ruins in the neighboring a region a bridge was blown up while a cargo train was crossing completely blocking the road connections to the city's regular sororities say it will take at least a month to repair caves crackdown on anti-government protesters has brought the region to its knees causing enormous physical damage. sure. as we move. on or you are in the room. the last week has seen government forces take back control of several cities in the. military has reportedly begun a full blown purge arresting local police and young men on mass
a video has also emerged of a radical ride ukrainian deputy threatening elderly man. do you know your own. never actually yes i think i just actual debate over the moon. all over feeling so i think you were god if. you were going to. have a last resort what was that much of g.m. does it seem ok my question was this. a local resident told us how would feel story man enslaved to now the city has been taken by government forces but. legal from street to street from flood to flat and it's all about arrests the rest of the entire police force and drove all the personnel to god knows where we have no idea what's happening to them people who are supposedly supporting the anti-government movement are missing they don't answer the phone and no one knows
what's going on with them you'd be putting your life in danger if you try to find that out. the images of destruction and suffering there are in shaking washington the state department has again voices total backing for days after a deadly but reportedly accidental bombing of a village in eastern ukraine a corresponding damages uganda was at the latest state department briefing. you know we see all these horrible shots from villages towns that were shelled by the ukrainian air force and you hear the state department defendable strike saying all those killings are the russian separatists fault basically the shots that we saw from the village of qana last week could leave one speechless twelve civilians were killed including a five year old this however did not generate any strong feelings at the u.s. state department these are just that's the reason why are these pictures these are shots of civilians blown to pieces in their homes in their backyards in the village
in eastern ukraine last week well what does the u.s. do to stop key if and doing it and they're going to make sure to be in to be clear on the ground the reports that we've seen and the vast majority of people who are reporting from the ground report that the russian backed separatists are the ones who are not only in gauged in in violence and efforts to take over buildings and attack people and innocent civilians and they have no place doing that in a country that's a sovereign country like ukraine the ukrainian security service itself says the shelling of kandahar could have been a pilot's mistake but the u.s. state department is staunchly defending king of no matter what mistakes the government if ukraine is defending the country if ukraine and i think they have every right to do that as does the international community and these people have the right to live. well i think the people of ukraine have the right to live in
peace and security without russian backed separatists attacking their homes and going into buildings and i think that's where the root cause of this is and we shouldn't we shouldn't forget that fact last week another state department spokesperson doubted the sources of a u.n. report that talks about a sharp increase in the number of people fleeing ukraine into russia a spokesperson suggested maybe they're going to russia to visit their grandmothers even though there are so many. it's that people face and. why they really flee from you see ukraine i asked about this today jen psaki read it more cautiously on this than her colleague last week but the general impression is that the u.s. department is trying to downplay the humanitarian crisis in the east of ukraine. our website is running a live update section on ukraine with all the latest as it comes in but there's also plenty more the for you including a look at her is to blame for the crisis in the east and why.
the u.n. secretary general has confirmed that in syria two cylinders are seized by government troops reportedly in a rebel held area contained the deadly sarin gas artie's policy as more. the united nations secretary-general ban ki moon has indicated that two cylinders that were reportedly found by syrian government troops in an area that was controlled by opposition fighters had inside the deadly sarin gas now the organization for the prohibition of chemical weapons as well as the united nations have jointly been overseeing syria's destruction of its chemical weapons program they analyzed the content of the cylinders and confirmed that it was indeed seven gas at the same time it's not clear when the senators were handed over by the damascus regime in a statement issued it did confirm and i'm quoting here that it had found abandoned
chemical weapons that did not belong to it at the same time it's also not yet clear whether the cylinders and indeed the contents have in fact been destroyed now so he agreed to have its entire chemical weapons stockpile destroyed this was after a deal was hammered out by russia and the united states after hundreds of syrians were killed in a gas attack in a suburb in damascus and in that attack the deadly seven gas was used on june the twenty third the last part of the transfer of chemical weapons out of syria took place so that phase of the transfer of weapons has now been completed. the blame game over who carried out the chemical assault has been the focus off into debates for many months but the adult postell from the message is that institute of technology believes the latest findings costs lives on the real author of the crime the big question from my point of view is. actually executed this attack
the west. position of the united states has been that the syrian government executed the attack the russian government has stated that they believe the evidence shows. well. executed. this. suggests that the russian point of view is more likely to be correct so it's quite a. point of view. that's going on in the us. until force coming up here on our teams or national will report on how the terrorists use the whole also all of strategic tools from p.r. to whistle blowing on the government as part of the bid to leave this slum a caliphate a success. also and it's when our program washington keeps trying and trying billions patients as reports suggest the cia recruited
a german intelligence agent for america. the french finance minister is aiming to break had germany. the us dollar after urging the use of a variety of currencies for global payments now this comes after american slept a nine a billion dollar fine and b.m.p. pair of us banks for helping countries avoid sanctions investment broker and financial commentator peter schiff says he was currency is far from the perfect global currency of choice. i think the united states is very dependent on the rest of the world it's just incumbent on the rest of the world to figure that out but the u.s. dollar is still functioning as a reserve currency and so the dollar is a part of a lot of transactions but there really is no reason for the dollar to be at the center of these transactions because the dollar shouldn't be the reserve currency of the united states doesn't share any of the characteristics that it had when the
dollar became the reserve currency just a matter of time before it no longer functions as a reserve currency and i think the more we tag guys the rest of the world with the spying or with these huge fines on foreign banks the quicker that process is going to be to unravel the latest target of the u.s. punitive financial machine is germany's second largest bank comments bank america is accusing the institution of also violating the sanction regime and now it faces a fine of at least a five hundred million dollars let's have a look at how the dollar dominance is a being broke a man nowadays it's no easy task at all as the currency is used in some eighty five percent of global exchange deal but some countries have found ways to shift away from the dollar and the biggest example of that is of course the eurozone eighteen countries some of which are among the world's economic powerhouses are making transactions with each other completely avoiding the dollar last year china signed
a massive currency swap agreement with the e.u. which allows that country to exclude the dollar probably and doing business with the block and on monday the brics countries agree to form their own bank as a counterweight to the i.m.f. of the broods of group think tank robert oulds the things the u.s. often results to fall see make others use the dollar. united states it really does defend the dollar with of course its full military force and that's been seen on a number of occasions where countries that have been arguing that they should move away from using the dollar then found themselves subject to the united states' sanctions and of course even in some cases military force overdue they reserve a great deal of concern about not just the way america runs its economy its enormous deficit which is now reaches seventeen trillion dollars of debts but of course the way that american foreign policy is very active around the world
which some people do not like. coming up for you later a large international one shall a dot enough for you well you can buy it and i'll plan results and it's an e-mail and full of very good fries we'll tell you all the details later in the program. olds traditions in the u.k. are being revived by new commas that's all coming up for you shortly. this is what we do we kill people and break things. we can see something as simple as people playing soccer you can see individual players and you can even see the ball. you can only see his facial expression you can see is now open crying out. maybe he cursed us or maybe he asked.

a state dealing with your very own whistleblower according to vice news the extremist group has somebody working on the inside reportedly revealing classified information such as the identity of leaders and all of these factors combined paint a troubling picture of a threat hardly an. one anticipated port r.t. new york. let's take a look at what we have online for the first time and illegal big trade is made any euro elysium fronts have detained two suspects off to raise in southern france and seized hundreds of requirements find out why on our dot com. and from earth to space that's when you quit google small firms with three d. vision and sensing to control roberts on the international space station all the details of this high tech story of a liberal now online. a contradiction to the trust between

relationship it should be a strong reaction on the other hand i mean this is politics and i mean like. scuse me is that this is just the price that the u.s. agents are. so i know it's not a surprise. we're going to other stories now and entire tell you the alpine village is being sold on e bay it's located in the north korean pre-modern region india a national park and fourteen laughs scenic views the prize a bargain despite the need for open renovation the asking price for the entire village is two hundred forty five thousand euros but this one be a great amount for some political analysts power of only really such deals the result of the european economic crisis this is not the first case in italy actually of villages which are being sold but this is the first story may actually that people live in those houses and the decide to quit the planes. and try to
change lives doesn't mean that it's an easy economic situation for them to see also suffer in front of similar situations where the number of castles for sale is incredibly high and they're relatively cheap culture has been subsidized but finally is that when it's not allowing these people to really make their living out of it with the cutting in the in the budgets this is reflected in the let's let's infrastructure's this is. in perspective for these people the only thing to do is to sell and run away. well it turns out these days of the real estate market can throw up a lot of surprises snapping up this brick building in manhattan will cost you fifteen million dollars just compare that with this fifteenth century castle in ireland that can be yours for less than
a million the emerald island certainly has something more lavish to offer at a fraction of the price than in new york if you prefer something more to the south or also of a castles up for grabs here's a selection of them here now from france italy as well as belgium once again on sale for less than the fifteen million price tag. more international news in brief now israel has launched more strikes on the hamas controlled gaza strip injuring at least nine palestinians according to reports it's part of a new operation protective edge and officials say it's a response to more than eighty rockets being fired across the border israel cold war one thousand five hundred residents in preparation for the offensive at least one palestinian militants have lost their lives as a result of earlier israeli air raids on gaza a spike in violence has intensified in the past week after three kidnapped israeli

looking to come up with any number of them pull more plans to get worshippers in but there is one small crumb of comfort for them in the latest figure is thanks to a change in demographics the fall in popularity is at the very least slowing because of the increase in the number of black drafty churches the increase in the rate of immigration and the increase in the number of new type of church called fresh expressions because of those increases the rate of decline of attendance and membership in the church as a whole has slowed down is said to be going to grant it is. about it's not becoming a huge. budget is simply not going to go on quite as fast as it was before. here in the heart of london this polish service packs in hundreds every sunday

spotlight you stay with us. when people talk about human rights violations you should involve some pro western protestors getting beaten up in response with mainstream media is usually to bomb somebody somewhere so good thing they haven't picked up a story from detroit that the un is calling a human rights violation residents of the motor city or well sadly the former motor city who are hundred fifty dollars or more behind on their water bills are getting their water shut off completely the water and sewage department is five billion dollars in debt and that is the justification to crack down on deadbeats on the surface the seems like an open and shut case of course i would have the right to water especially detroit which is near a huge bodies of fresh water that other cities could only dream of but on the other hand if the poor don't pay for water then us taxpayers will be paying for it for
them and that's not fair i think this is not so much a case of a right to water but a right to decent employment and a corruption free city government back when people detroit had good salaries and a government that wasn't flagrantly corrupt they would have any problems paying for their water bills but that's just my opinion. talking about language but i will only react to situations i have read the reports of. what has been know i will leave them to the state department to comment on your latter point i'm so. sick yet because all the talk you know. i think you know more weasel. or. when you they had a direct question me prepared for a change when you told punch be ready for a. freedom of speech a little down the freedom to question. your
